Adipocyte fatty acid-binding protein (AFABP) is an adipokine that has been implicated in modulation of insulin sensitivity and lipid metabolism. Higher plasma AFABP levels are associated with(More)

In this report, we describe the first case, to our knowledge, of congenital Zika syndrome with concomitant critical congenital heart disease.

Pulmonary vasoreactivity could determine the responsiveness to vasodilators and in turn the prognosis of pulmonary hypertension (PH). We hypothesized that pulmonary vasoreactivity is impaired, and examined the underlying mechanisms, in the sugen-hypoxia rat model of severe PH. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were injected with sugen (20 mg/kg sc) and exposed to(More)
